§ Q25. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Prime Minister whether she has any plans to bring forward proposals to encourage those who are on supplementary benefit to undertake academic study.
§ The Prime Minister
Supplementary benefit claimants are able to engage in part-time study so long as they fulfil the basic condition for entitlement in continuing to be available for employment. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services is keeping the detailed provisions of the relevant regulations under review.
